I’ll always be astounded by how God works in our hearts enabling us to put others before ourselves because for many (including myself), it doesn’t come by default. These people, they don’t get paid to do this—almost every week, they meet to discuss ways to draw young people to Christ; there have been times when they would go hungry when funds were not enough; they sacrifice time with family, friends, and rest; they endure scoldings from parents for doing church stuff; add to all these their being underappreciated. Some of them hold full-time jobs, the rest are students—meaning their hands are already full, but despite it all, here they are, pouring their hearts out…
“Dear Youth Leaders, know that what you do is creating an impact so great that it can turn things around for so many young people out there. I, for one, know that doesn’t seem like so most of the time, but your impassioned endeavors are changing lives everywhere. Keep at it!”
This is what we saw on the day we came out to invite young people aged 10-16 for our Church’s Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS) 2013.
“Wow! This is a great sign for our upcoming DVBS… a sign of God’s blessings that are in store for us!” I said with excitement and confidence.
We got tired physically, hungry and thirsty on our long walk to reach out to these children, but our spirits were filled and sustained.
There’s nothing in the world that is more fulfilling and satisfying than doing things for His glory.
I thank God for what He has already done for us and in us as I, along with my brothers and sisters in Christ here in JCEF Church, strive to do our part in spreading His Word. In the same way, I thank Him now for what He is yet to do. I believe it’s never gonna be ordinary, instead it’s gonna be something that is too wonderful to behold or in one word: INDESCRIBABLE … as always! 🙂
